The Anonymous Widower

Justice – Texas Style

This article from the respected TIME Magazine is chilling.

It further supports my view that no civilised nation should use the death penalty.  After all, the three biggest users of ths cruel punishment are China, Iran and the United States.  America may think they are civilised and many Americans are, but whilst some states still use this cruel punishment, that deserves to be in the dustbin of history, they can’t all call themselves so.  I had hopes that Obama would get rid of the death penalty, especially as most of those executed or likely to be so are Afro-Americans. He is rapidly losing any respect I might have had for him.

  1. I agree this is very chilling. I too believe the death penalty should be ceased. I suspect that over the years quite a number of innocent people have been killed that way.
